OUR MISSION is to help others make lasting, meaningful impacts in their community by helping nonprofits, small local businesses, and individuals succeed.
Boules Consulting works mainly with burgeoning to mid-scale nonprofit organizations and social enterprises who struggle with direction, funding, and lack of person power and who want that burden lifted off them. What sets us apart is our ability to synthesize analytical and outcome-driven data with compelling story telling and effective infrastructure development.
Boules Consulting is an independently-owned small business based in the heart of Orange County. From humble beginnings, Boules Consulting has grown to represent small businesses, nonprofits, and individuals from all over the United States as grant writers, copywriters, and project managers. Our core philosophy is based on the idea that by targeting community stakeholders such as local businesses, nonprofits, and individuals, we do our part to make a lasting, meaningful impact on our community.
Marianne Melleka Boules, MPP is a grant writer, strategic planner, and nonprofit consultant living in sunny breezy Orange County.
After graduating third in her class with high honors and receiving a full scholarship for her master’s degree, Marianne worked in various governmental positions helping to analyze program effectiveness and managing grant-funded programs. During her tenure as a public servant, Marianne worked closely with local nonprofit organizations, and it was there that she fell in love with the sector. She noticed that while smaller nonprofits did amazing work integral to the wellbeing of the community and could benefit from an extra set of hands, these nonprofits operated on razor-thin budgets and could not afford the extra staffing.
Boules Consulting was created as a way to solve this issue by providing low-cost outsourcing for Executive Directors who need help with grant writing, marketing, copywriting, program evaluation, and more but lacked the funds to hire a large-scale consultancy or the time to manage a full or part time employee. Today, Boules Consulting is celebrating its third year in operation and has helped raise millions of dollars for its clients, provided direction and implementation for new nonprofits, and most importantly, helped executive directors achieve their dreams.
